I love Shark products, but hate this "new and inproved" model of the Navigator. I swear by my original Navigator and wanted a 2nd one for the lower level where the kids have their palyroom. The stair canister detachment was bulky and the hose was cumbersome when disconnected and trying to use for corners. Also, the dust collection canister has a strange design with an oddly placed plastic connection piece which catched lint and hair causing it to clog and requires one to manually pick the dust/lint/hair when emptying the vacuum. I returned this vacuum to Kohl's and hope Shark fixes the flaws in the new design.

A Kirby owner for over twenty years, until one of the motors went out for using attachments. Purchased the Shark Navigator Lift Away and was pleasantly surprised at cleaning/suction capacity. I had cleaned my carpet the day before with my Kirby and when I got my Shark home the next day, I cleaned the same areas again with it. I was surprised how much dirt and dust that the Shark had picked up. I would highly recommend this vacuum. I also purchased another Shark Navigator two days later for my daughter and she loves her's as much as I do, because it is lightweight and really does a great job of cleaning.

Read other reviews before purchasing so I knew there were some things i would not like: placement of cord and cord length, not being able to get as far under things and having to empty the compartment after each use. I also think things are just not made the way they used to be ( all the plastic parts) but that is how it is now. Having said all that, I really love this sweeper. It picks up the dirt like nothing else and I love being able to remove the canister and carry it around. Even if I did not have to empty it out after each use, I would anyway. I have never had a sweeper where you had to clean the filters every 3 months and i haven't done this yet but I like the idea.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by lulubelle0117 A great vacuum!
I see that this product is no longer available online, but I wanted to write a review anyway. This is the best vacuum I've ever purchased. Although I have a very good vacuum purchased elsewhere, it is very, very heavy and not very maneuverable. The Shark vacuum is smaller, lighter, much more maneuverable, and just as powerful. The attachments are great, too! We own a camper, and with a very large dog that sheds, we need to vacuum it regularly, too. This vacuum is a much better fit int he camper as well as in our home. I also like how the filters on this vacuum are washable and I don't have to purchase new ones every couple of months. The filters for my other vacuum are very expensive!
